The Arkansas RegulatorsForthcoming

THE ARKANSAS REGULATORS
Friedrich Gerstäcker
Translated and edited by Charles Adams and Christoph Irmscher

Volume 5, Transatlantic Perspectives

 

The Arkansas Regulators is a rousing tale of frontier adventure, first published in German in 1846, but virtually lost to English readers for well over a century. Written in the tradition of James Fenimore Cooper, but offering a much darker and more violent image of the American frontier, this was the first novel produced by Friedrich Gerstäcker, who would go on to become one of Germany’s most famous and prolific authors.

It does so in a way that is not always linear, but this aspect also has a positive side, insofar as it implies working to keep open a debate that still has not found its synthesis.” • HISTORY.
